That the front cover gasket needs to be replaced. That's the cause of the oil leak .

My starter is on its last leg, and while under it tapping it with the breaker bar, ive realized that my front diff is leaking fluid from the drivers side cv axle seal, the cover seal and the seal where the drive shaft goes in at. I guess this happens right at 100 thousand miles.

Only thing I hate about my truck is that I am still making payments.

The only thing I hate on my truck is that my tensioner bolt just snapped on me at a red light. But other than that the more work I put into her the more love, affection, and hard work she gives me
